Summer began last Saturday and many of you probably gardened, went to a farmer’s market or festival. I did what any Wild Rider would do on the first day of summer. I skied!
My husband, Danny, and I wore “gaper” attire for the last day at Arapahoe Basin. According to the Urban Dictionary, “A gaper is a skier or snowboarder who is completely clueless. Usually distinguished by their bright colored clothes and a gaper gap or the gap between goggles and a helmet or hat.”
Who knew we’d be color coordinated?
It was about 65 degrees on the bottom, but the temperature dropped on the chairlift.
The conditions appeared to be more than a little thin.
Gapers ruled at the top of A-Basin!
A brave soul glides across snow melt on the first day of summer. The ski patrol called it clown skimming.
After skiing the last run of the season, we found the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour in Keystone, Colorado.
It was a bacon-eating, rock concert kind of afternoon.
We decided our gaper attire may not fly,
…so we toned it down.
How did you kick off the first day of summer?
I am, mostly, an indoor bird, so the day passed without much attention from me.
Snappy colors would be a hit on Miami scene !
We have that Miami Vice thing going on. 🙂 Danny’s ski outfit is from the 80’s!!! It probably hasn’t changed that much!
Thanks for stopping by Carl!
